A Drink with Jam and Bread
My mom loved Constant Comment tea. So when I read a book lately in which the author referred to Constant Comment, I thought of Mom right away and the many conversations she and I had over a "cuppa" throughout the years. I think there's no gift more intimate among good friends than a gift of tea. This holiday season, I gave my friend Ellen some Constant Comment as a remembrance of the special friendship she and my mother had. I gave our friend Betty chai tea -- a favorite of hers, and I gave my boss a calming tea blend to balance her busy life. A cup of tea has the amazing ability to calm the nerves and clear the mind. And on a cold, snowy, dreary winter day, a steaming cup of tea goes delightfully well with a good book in one's favorite chair. I can see myself there now.
